Living sustainably isn't as hard as you think, here are 6 easy habits you can start today.

Since the Covid-19 pandemic, our planet has faced an alarming surge in plastic waste—1.6 million tonnes per day, threatening our hard-earned progress against global pollution, according to Science Direct. At Flavedo, we are committed to sustainability, we believe that every action counts, especially during Plastic Free July.

This month, let's empower ourselves to make a difference by reducing our reliance on single-use plastics. It starts with simple choices like saying no to straws, shopping bags, and disposable coffee cups. But there are many other ways to incorporate eco-conscious choices into our daily routines—at home, at work, and communities.

Here are some practical challenges to inspire your journey:

- Farmers' market freshness: Opt for locally grown produce at farmers' markets or choose loose fruits and vegetables to minimise plastic packaging.

-Naked beauty rituals: Embrace naked beauty products like soap and shampoo bars, eliminating the need for plastic bottles and reducing environmental impact.  

- Smile sustainably: Switch to plastic-free dental essentials such as bamboo toothbrushes and floss packaged in cardboard, contributing to a cleaner planet with every brush.

- Wrap responsibly: Ditch cling wrap for sustainable alternatives like beeswax wraps or glass containers to store your leftovers, reducing plastic waste in your kitchen.  

-Bin audit: Take a moment to audit your waste disposal habits—ensure items are correctly recycled or composted to minimise landfill contributions.

-Neighbourhood Cleanup: Make a local impact by joining efforts to clean up your surroundings, preventing litter from polluting our waterways and inspire others to take action.

Looking to update your beauty routine with plastic-free choices? Our entire range is made with recyclable materials—aluminium, sustainable timber, and glass—designed to be recycled in your curb-side bin without specialised facilities. 

While individual changes may seem small, their collective impact is profound. Together, we can make a difference—one sustainable choice at a time.
